This project will support our early childhood learning program at Amun Shea school by providing school supplies, age-appropriate learning tools, developmental toys, and teacher/aide funding. Children living in poverty deserve a high-quality education; this project will help make this happen.
Children living in poverty are the least likely to attend early childhood education programs. Even more, the quality of programs in poverty-stricken areas is often less than optimal for healthy development and learning. This is especially true in rural Northen Morazan, El Salvador where our educational program, Amun Shea, is located. With poorly trained educators, overcrowded and unstimulating environments, and insufficient curricula, how can students truly thrive?
Like UNICEF, we believe that every child deserves access to quality early childhood education. We offer comprehensive early childhood learning in our Semillas (which means "seeds") learning community at Amun Shea. Currently, we have 13 students between the ages of 4 and 6 years who come from areas throughout rural Northern Morazan and a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds. We believe in breaking down barriers to disrupt cycles of poverty-- quality education at Amun Shea to the rescue!
This project will strengthen our Semillas learning community through tangible support for students' learning and teachers' professional development. Providing quality early childhood education today means a brighter and more peaceful future for our current 13 budding scholars and all of El Salvador, Latin America, and beyond!
